Academic Fridays – Every Friday afternoon is dedicated to academics with mandatory attendance by all residents except for the on-call team. Typically, there are three lectures given by attending physicians. We have initiated weekly required reading schedules with a quiz every Friday. Each resident is asked to provide two questions from the readings for the quiz. After taking the quiz the residents go over the questions in a very low stress no  attending environment. The scores are known only by the chief resident who keeps score amongst resident teams for our academic competition. The winners last year rec’d $400 toward books or other resources and the other teams rec’d lesser amounts so that there were no losersJ

Pediatric Journal Club – Every Wednesday morning at 7:30AM – Mandatory for the second year on rotation. Open to all residents.

Journal Club – Once a month residents and attending come together for a fun night of dining and education. Typically three articles are presented by residents for a discussion in a low pressure setting.
